Country Music style: Martina McBride’s hair

Country music star Martina McBride is riding high this awards season. Most recently she joined singers like Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Nettles on CBS’ Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country. 

Earlier this spring, she walked the Red Carpet at the Academy of Music Awards show. Back in the day, Martina was one of the rare stars to chop off her hair. While it was darling as all-get-out, her long mane is gorgeous! Long brown layers are highlighted in auburn… there’s even a few grays showing through (as if Martina’s not afraid to show her age!). Actually those highlights might be blond, but look silver in a different light. Either way, it doesn’t matter. We’re more interested in the way she makes glamour look natural. This do would work any day or night worn in a variety of ways—blown dry with big curls on the end, straightened, messy, ringlets, waves or natural.

Academy of Country Music hairstyles: Miranda Lambert & Taylor Swift

Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift are big winners of the Academy of Country Music Awards 2011. Miranda took home four awards—the most of the night—and Taylor got what she’d been coveting for years, Entertainer of the Year. As expected, the singers got all tressed up for the occasion. At first glance they looked very much alike when holding their prizes. But then you notice the differences: long and longer, blond and blonder, curled and curlier, bangs on and off the face. Mira’s do is easier to recreate: simply blow dry with a big round brush. For more curl do a quick roller set or use a curling iron with a big barrel. Tay’s glamour waves can take up to an hour to do at home. You almost have to use a three-barrel waving iron and work small sections at a time. For special occasions, you might want to get the look at a salon for time-savings and professional quality.   

 

Earlier in the evening, Miranda wore another do to walk the Red Carpet. She pulled her hair back and left long side bangs down to sweep to one side. Another view of the top Entertainer shows how the waves are just as pretty from the side. This is a good reminder for us to think about how our hair looks all the way around—from side to side including the back. In this lighting the haircolor variations of platinum and gold are more noticeable. Who knew long blond curls could look so different, yet be so alike?

In the end, these blondes had more fun showing off their trophies than worrying about their hair. What good is a pretty hairstyle without a happy face? Our moms used to say we were prettier when we smiled. Maybe they’re onto something!

Country Music fashion: Meghan Linsey’s hairstyles

 

Meghan Linsey is one of your 10 favorite stars on realhairstyles.net. We suspect that there’s more reasons for her popularity than her ‘dos. There’s her boyfriend Joshua Scott Jones and their vocal duo Steel Magnolia. Their sudden success has earned them a nomination for Best New Duo/Group of the Year by the Academy of Country Music (ACM). Though they were edged out by Band Perry, these Steely singers will perform along with other hot stars at the first ever Fan Jam held in conjunction with the ACM  2011 awards show (this Sunday).

These two dos are very similar but not quite alike. The one on the right gives you an idea how the haircut looks from the side. For high glamour, all of her hair is volumized and then rolled off the face. This twist gives her very short hair the look of an upsweep. The same kind of thinking goes into the solo shot. Little things make the difference: bangs are lifted to one side instead of back and ends are swept up instead of down. A red-hot hair ornament adds color to her form-fitting black gown.

Here’s two other dos that resemble each other, and both are perfect for awards shows or the gala du jour. Personally we think the hair at left is one of the prettiest we’ve seen on Meg or any star for that matter! It’s shorter with more layers and pure white. Finger-brushing while blow-drying creates a fluffy, feathery crop. On the right, Meg’s hair is longer, less layered, and salty and pepper blond. Styling time is pretty similar except for the polished finish created with a round brush and blow-drier while hair’s still slightly damp. If your hair falls flat too soon after styling, use big hot rollers or a curling iron.

Yet another reason for Steel Magnolia’s appeal is its down-to-earth charm. Their friendly personalities shine through when posing with fellow country star Kellie Pickler. 

Getting back to the mane thing, you’ve gotta love Meghan’s casually chic, sideswept ponytail and long bangs. Stay tuned for more on Meghan!
